oil studies

just some monochromatic quick oil thingies done on scraps of canvas to get back into painting, just trying to improve and learn but also have fun.

this was one was done in a sitting - as i was fleshing out his character, kinda reminded me of bukowski, i had loads of fun doing his expression.

this was 2 sittings/
experimenting with using just a brown and white, but how u can get really warm thin shadows and then let that dry, then paint over the lights with cooler opaque and keep the shadows thin and warm.

one sitting from a photo...but i had to change lots from the photo...too much detail... had loads of fun.
